2. Terms of application of harbor dues charged by FSUE “Rosmorport” from vessels in the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya

 

     Terms of application of harbor dues in the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya are established by Order No. 223/16 of the FAS of Russia dated 10.03.2016 with the specifications established by Order No. 711/16 of the FTS of Russia dated 06.06.2016.

     Harbor dues rates are applied for payments for services provided by the FSUE “Rosmorport” Astrakhan Branch, for the use of the certain seaport infrastructure facilities, ensuring safety of navigation in the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya, and approaches to them.

     Harbor dues are paid by Russian and foreign shipowners or their authorized persons for vessels port calls at the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya, departure from the seaports, as well as transiting through the corresponding seaports.

     Harbor dues in the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya are established for Russian vessels navigating under the state flag of the Russian Federation (hereinafter - Russian vessels) and vessels navigating under the flags of foreign states (hereinafter - foreign vessels).

     Harbor dues rates in the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya are established for Russian vessels in foreign voyage and foreign vessels, as well as for Russian vessels in coastal navigation, and are differentiated according to the types of vessels:

  • all vessels, except ro-ro ships, dry-cargo ships, container ships and tankers;
  • ro-ro ships, dry-cargo ships and container ships;
  • tankers.

     Foreign vessels carrying out coastal voyages, pay harbor dues at the rates established for foreign vessels in foreign traffic.

     Flag and type of vessel are determined by the vessel's documents.

     For the purposes of applying the harbor dues rates, flag of tug and tow is determined by the flag on the self-propelled part.

     Harbor dues rates are established per unit of gross tonnage indicated in the Rating Certificate.

     Calculation of harbor dues for tankers with isolated ballast tanks is made without taking into account the gross tonnage of isolated ballast tanks indicated in Rating Certificate.

     In the absence of information in the Rating Certificate about gross tonnage of the isolated ballast tanks and on reduced gross tonnage of the tanker, harbor dues are calculated with a coefficient of 0.9.

     For the calculation of harbor dues, a passenger vessel with gross tonnage more than 40,000 is considered to be equal to gross tonnage of 40,000.

     Harbor dues for vessels without Rating Certificate are calculated according to conditional vessel volumetric capacity, estimated in cubic meters, by multiplying three vessel's dimensions - overall length, overall breadth and depth overall indicated in vessel's documents, with coefficient 0.35.

     When a vessel calls at the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya, harbor dues are paid for the voyage on which the vessel called at the corresponding seaport. When a vessel departures from the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya, harbor dues are paid for the voyage in which the vessel leaves the seaport. 

     Vessel calling at the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya without cargo, shall pay harbor dues for the voyage during which it entered the port. A vessel, departing from the respective seaport without cargo, pays harbor dues for the voyage on which it called at the seaport.

     Vessel calling at the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya without carrying out cargo and passenger operations, as well as transiting through the water area, pay harbor dues at rates of the current voyage (foreign or coastal).

     Harbor dues rates (except pilotage dues and navigation dues rates regarding vessel traffic control system (hereinafter - VTS)) for vessels calling at the seaports of Astrakhan and Olya without carrying out operations with cargo and servicing of passengers, transiting through the relevant seaport water area, except cases stipulated by in paragraphs 1.12, 1.14, of Order of FAS Russia No. 223/16 dated 10.03.2016 are applied with coefficient 0.5.

     Gross tonnage of tug and tows, convoys and other composite floating objects (including rafts) when calculating harbor dues (except ecological dues) is defined as the sum of gross tonnage of all the constituent elements of floating objects. If separate objects of tug and tow are of different types, harbor dues are calculated separately for each part of the composite floating object with the use of rates for the corresponding type. In the absence of gross tonnage of floating objects, calculation is made according to conditional volumetric capacity of floating objects, estimated in cubic meters, by multiplying three vessel's dimensions - overall length, overall breadth and depth overall indicated in vessel's documents, with coefficient 0.35. 

     Harbor dues from lighter carrier conducting cargo operations with lighters, are calculated with the total gross tonnage of the lighters discharged when calling at seaports of Astrakhan and Olya, and loaded prior to departure from the corresponding seaport.

 

     Harbor dues rates are not charged from the following vessels:

  • training, simulation training vessels, and training and production vessels used for educational activities;
